. have everybody stand on the corner with a bag of cash. it is idiotic and nancy pelosi, she is a -- econist. that is it a guy who drives the car by looking in the rear view mirror and goes around and seriously she's more interested in "saving the economy" than doing something correct or doing it right. by the way, recently and i saw this on another network, forgive me, they were talking about unemployment and they were saying that the idea of unemployment insurance stretching out to 99 weeks where they would start a guy in the midwest in manufacturing and start somebody on a job . they would train him agree to train him if he was not skilled . that tells you about the federal training programs . get him a job. no, we rather collect the unemployment. >> one of my fave identity economist is it christian dorsey . this is it a perfect question for you i got to say. every dollar that they take in they will spend and there is it an economic benefit and i believe you agree with that as well. >> it is not that controversial. who sonot drawing in economy and they get one that will he

this to the floor? >> an urgent message from nancy pelosi. but it's casual friday for speaker boehner. >> this isn't a progress report bauds there's no progress to report. >> today's news, speaker boehner and president obama will be the only two at the table to make a deal. i'll ask emanuel cleaver if boehner can get it done. >>> 33 months of private sector job growth. now is the time to start spending on jobs. david cay johnston is here. >>> the filibuster is more than an embarrassing blunder. bernie sanders explains why. >>> the right to work in michigan has ignited a fire storm with workers. we'll have the latest on rick snider's race to the bottom. >>> and breaking news from the supreme court. there will be a decision on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. law professor jonathan terly has all the details. >> thanks for watching. john boehner isn't having a lot of fun this holiday season. president obama continues his pressure campaign to pass the tax cuts. the president is also taking time to be fesive. john boehner doesn't sound so merry. >> no progress report because there's no progr
the policies of nancy pelosi, if you just compare them, technocratically speaking, nancy pelosi never lost a vote. she never once got so confused and lost control of the group she was supposed to be leading, she never got caught out saying something was going to pass. she never put up something to pass and had it fail. whether or not you like what nancy pelosi stands for, as a speaker of the house, nancy pelosi was good at her job. john boehner is not good at his job. we've ventured this as a hypothesis very early on in his speakership, i mean right from the beginning. it seemed like there might be something amiss, right? on the first day as speaker, he tried to have republicans pull off the stunt where they would read the whole constitution from the floor of the house. but even on day one, john boehner could not manage his own symbolic gesture. they skipped parts of the constitution. they skipped parts they did not like. and some parts they skipped because they were reading it out of a loose leaf binder and the pages stuck together. right then we should have known that was a bad sign. joh
entrance. those are the suvs that likely boehner, mcconnell, pelosi and reid will come out of. let's talk about the deal. what if there's a deal, craig, for, i don't know, say 4 hr $500,000 the threshold of who gets taxes and who keeps -- everybody under that number keeps their tax cuts. everyone over pays more and there's spending cuts. is that a bad deal? >> yeah. i think it is. let me tell you why. because you can't get everything out of this deal that you want and frankly, all we're doing is kicking the can down the road. you know as well as i do this does nothing to deal with the $1 trillion plus deficits we have yearly. this is the fifth year in a row, we're going to have $20 trillion worth of debt on top of $48 trillion worth a long-term liabilities by the time mr. obama leaves office. this is the time to deal with this issue. we've been kicking it down the road ten years. we promised the nation in 2011 under the budget deal with the sequesters we would not let this get away from us. we shouldn't this time. for mr. obama to suggest i've cut a trillion in spending because he saved m
the mayor and the supervisor and the house leader pelosi, representatives here from the two neighborhoods and others, and really to say that, and i think henry you talked about the mayor's leadership here and really about the vision of transforming our housing, improving schools and supporting economic development that these are the most effective when the public and the private institutions work together and break down barriers and cut through the red tape and thank you very much for your leadership. [applause] so choice neighborhoods is just one powerful example of the obama administration investing better and we do what works and stop what doesn't work and form the partnerships that we need to solve the challenges of irnlt generational pof poverty for once and for all and it takes on average two generations to break that cycle of poverty and we are trying to break it in one and the efforts we're supporting and we want every american to have the chance to get ahead no matter where they are and live, whether it's a second grader to go to school or a parent walking their kid safely to sch

around for several years when he was the ranking member back when pelosi and the democrats from were in power. he would introduce it as the minority budget and i think 20 to 25% of republicans routinely voted against it. when the tea party wave came in and the republicans retook the house and now ryan was chairman of the house budget committee, ryan was very very clever too for one thing develop consistencies on these think-tanks ollman the leadership as well. the small number of moderates were drowned out and ultimately that will pass with a thing for republicans voting against it which is an astonishing kind of consensus. right and is widely admired amongst the freshman and he's a very clever guy, ryan. a as my colleague said that "the new york times magazine" in his piece recently on brian, ryan is one of those guys who pulled off being a politician who makes you feel like he's above politics and is not about politics and in fact he practices his own brand of politics. >> should romney and ryan lose in november 6 in congressman brian presumably gets reelected running on the same d
leader nancy pelosi. as soon as she gets to the podium we'll take you there live and see what miss pelosi has to say about all of this. if the house is going to plan "b," should investors have a plan "b" now? we find out now in our "closing bell" exchange. luds let's go to minority leader pelosi. >> there's still time for us to come to an agreement, and i hope that that time will be well used. in the last 24 hours the question that i get from my could you cause and from some of you is what is the speaker trying to prove by going to his -- what we call plan "b" befuddled? is he trying to prove by bringing the two bills to the floor tomorrow that the republicans are here to protect the wealthiest people in our country at the expense of the middle class? if so, he will do that tomorrow. is he here to prove that he doesn't care about going over the cliff? if so, he will do that tomorrow unless he leaves from that debate and goes into the room to negotiate with the president. is he here to prove that he doesn't care about sgr, the rate that doctors are paid for medicare patients? if so, he wil
issue. politicians across the country are starting to tackle it. nancy pelosi wants a vote by saturday. that would prohibit the production of high production magazines. >> theirs is a very complicated and difficult position but we are able to do this with calibrations legislation. and really that is effective. >> that would ban magazines holding 10 rounds of ammunition house speaker, john boehner did not address the issue on wednesday. many of our elected officials are saying enough talk about gun control. it is time to do something. and that something could happen by the weekend. gun control is a complex issue. politicians across the tackle it. house minority leader nancy pelosi wants a vote by saturday. on legislation that would prohibit the production of high-capacity it would ban magazines house speaker john boehner did not address the issue michigan governor rick snyder vetoed legislation that would have allowed concealed weapons to be carried in churches, the measure had strong snyder said friday's tragedy played a role in his decision. florida's governor rick scott has been well
to be leader nancy pelosi because she may have to deliver some democratic votes to get something done. >> reporter: absolutely. pelosi and mcconnell are really going to sort of step into the center stage at this point in time. they are going to be crucial as well as, of course, house speaker john boehner, but really there's going to be a lot of focus right now on the senate because, as you remember, house speaker john boehner tried to get his own bill passed through the house. that didn't happen. he didn't have enough votes, so essentially everything shifts right now to the senate. so harry reid, mitch mcconnell, nancy please elosi on the house to say here are the number of democrats i could get if you offer a compromise package. but this is really a tough situation because there's so little time left and we've already seen the markets impacted by this. so if we do go over the cliff, if you look at the polls, most americans saying republicans will bear the brunt. they will blame republicans, but the bottom line is the president will get a lot of blame as well because this is going to
